What to do with a butternut squash 1....

I have a butternut squash that is rather large for 2 people so I thought about what to do to make multiple meals.
The first recipe is an adaptation from Aarti party coconut soup.

1 butternut squash
2 empire apples
olive oil
garlic powder
stock of choice
heavy cream
creamed spinach--optional
homemade crouton --optional

Butter nut squash and Apple soup

Roast 1 medium to large butternut squash 45-60 mins on 325 degrees--until fork
sprinkle squash with olive oil and sprinkle on garlic powder, cinnamon and nutmeg

Roast apple with squash for 15 mins.
sprinkle apple with same seasonings

Remove from oven and allow to cool 15-20 mins.

put squash and apples into blender with chicken (or vege stock if you prefer) stock and blend until smooth.

Put into a pot, salt and pepper, and simmer for 15 mins. Gently add cream. Serve with a dollop of sour cream or I served it with a dollop of creamed spinach and homemade croutons.
